The Village of Rothienorman is settled in an attractive rural location eleven miles north-west of Inverurie and 12 miles south west of Turriff.
The school’s current roll for 2017-2018 is 147 and there are an additional 26 children in nursery.
Rothienorman Primary School has 7 full time teaching staff, 2 part time teaching staff (1 about to go on maternity leave), 1 probationer, 2 full-time pupil support assistants, 2 part-time pupil support assistants, a full time Early Years Lead Practitioner (nursery teacher), one full time early years practitioner and 1 part-time early years practitioner. The Head Teacher is non class committed.
This year we do not have visiting specialist teachers but instead our existing teachers have time out of class where they deliver a specialism to other classes. We also have a teacher who provides support for learning 3 days per week. The school works closely with a range of other support agencies and volunteers in order to provide the best possible experience for children with additional support needs. Rothienorman School is part of the Meldrum Community Schools’ Network and works closely with the other 12 schools in the Network.
HMIe last inspected the school in November 2011. The Care Inspectorate last inspected the nursery on 2nd May 2017.
Our Vision, Values and Aims and our Curriculum Rationale provides more detail on what we strive to achieve and are contained within our school handbook (under the Documents tab). More detail regarding this can be seen in our constantly evolving display in the main entrance-way. We have an active Parent Partnership Group (PPG) which organises a variety of social and fundraising events throughout the year and supports the school in a wide variety of other important ways.
We have a number of extra-curricular clubs which run at different times during the year including table tennis, football, jogging, computing and dodgeball.
